Hello Everyone. I'm not really good with these things so I hope I can get my story across properly. Let me give some backstory. About a year ago today I lost my mother. I was her primary caregiver due to many different conditions such as congenital heart failure and a deformed lung. I stopped attending college to look after her and her animals. I did not get to attend work because I constantly needed to be around in case she needed help with anything. We lived off of a "paycheck" she got from our family. When you're in your 20s and living like that you feel pretty useless, but I needed to help her and I didn't care how others viewed me. Around the end of October we lost her. It was devastating to me, but based on the current health crisis it could've been a mercy on her too. She went peacefully. I was then looking after the 3 dogs she had. 2 Giant schnauzers and a 13 year old cocker spaniel with next to no sight and no hearing. And within the first week of her passing it happened. The cocker started having seizures. The first one happened it the morning and I rushed him to the vet. It had been his first one in 8 years so they figured it would be fine and to monitor it. Nothing else. It did not turn out fine. That night he had 3 back to back seizures and I luckily found a 24/7 clinic. We got him there and a couple thousand dollars later and a few days of monitoring he seemed to be doing fine. So they gave me some medication and sent me on the way. Everything seemed to be fine for the first few hours he was home. But the dog seemed off. He wouldn't stop moving. He had walked more in those few hours than he had in the last 5 years. I even tried holding him and he wouldn't stop. Then he started shacking uncontrollably. Cue another rush to the clinic and another thousand to get him treatment. I had savings from years prior so I didn't care. I wanted him to be taken care of. Now flash forward to present. He's had to go in a few other times and each time has taken a huge toll on me. I've looked for work, but there has been nowhere that has gotten in contact with me afterwards. And now I'm scared. Not for me, but for my animals. If the cocker has another episode I won't be able to afford to take him in and one of the giant's has a lump forming on his rib cage, but the vets won't see him without payment. I'm not looking for donations for me. I could be poor and happy if my dogs were 100% healthy. What scares me is not being able to take care of them in their time of need. I understand times are tough on all of us. If you can donate I really appreciate it. If you can't then please just give a little prayer for my animals. I want them to have a long, happy and healthy life. Thank you.
